    I was told that all 5 were hens but obviously I have some roos in here ;) I was also told they were Rhode Island Reds but now I'm not so sure... How many roos do you think I have and which breed? Thanks for the opinions![​IMG][/IMG]

    [​IMG] 3 and perhaps 4 cockerels - they look more like some sort of meat bird than production reds or RIR. [​IMG]

    .That was my first thought too, that they are a meat bird. Those are some really thick legs and big feet. Same thought on the Cockerals too.
